    TWD Update

    We're currently in the process of reworking some aspects of TWD, as well as shaping other league plans.

    In the works are a TWD Cup with staff-organized matchmaking and squad match scheduling. More info soon.

    There are some quality of life changes we are now live-testing as well:

    • No more waiting period between leaving one squad and joining a new one (don't abuse or it'll just get put back, obviously)
    • Assistants can now accept squad applicants, but not deny them
    • New squad members can PM TWDBot with !applytomysquad to apply to their squad, removing the need to leave the game and log in to the TWD site
    • Caps/assistants can PM !accept <name> to TWDBot to accept applicants


    The hope is that this should make recruiting players a much simpler process, allowing squads to grow more easily.

    We will also be modifying how squad ratings work. Consider the current TWD off-season to be a test: ratings are subject to change at any time. (Sorry, have to do it this way, as there's no testing department.) Details to be released soon, but the basic idea is:
    • Every match played will increase your rating, regardless of win or loss.
    • Losses will give a flat increase, probably 5 points.
    • Wins will give a flat increase of probably 10 points, with an additional bonus based on the difference between the ratings of the two squads, similar to how wins currently work.
    • Forfeits will be zero-sum in terms of points added to the system overall (amount won will be equal to amount lost), to prevent abuse. Forfeiting a match will be the only way you can lose points.

    1:Mutalisk> heard that n1111ga okyo got some DSLs

    Paradise> No names but there's actually a black man in the arena right now.

    Paradise> NO NAMES. NOT A SINGLE NAME.....but 3/6 of the players on Force are of a certain descent. I will not go any further.

    Could we start by doing a LADDER RESET RIGHT NOW ....

    It has been like over 2 years which is depressing and I'm tired of Paladen being so low.

    It will start to incentivize squads and players NOW into making squads and beginning a competitive environment for the upcoming TWD CUP (Which we should call TWL Cup)

    Thanks .. please reset ladders!!! Looking forward to the new league/cup. I am here to help with ideas too if needed.

    Actively making changes, so it wouldn't be so helpful to reset at the moment, when things could easily go wrong, and might lead to some confusion about the intention of it. Reset'll come soon enough, don't worry!

    Been a fair bit of activity, especially compared to recent times.
